US Horse Racing Odds: Thursday 5th May

Gulfstream Park

There are six cards for US horse racing fans to look forward to on Thursday, with the action Stateside running from 17:40 UK time, all the way through to 03:17 on Friday morning.

Laurel Park’s nine-race card from 17:40 to 22:19 gets things going and Betfred are offering their Extra Place Race promotion in the opener and also in the 18:52, 19:25, 19:59, 21:09 and 21:44 contests.

In the last of those, the penultimate race, connections will be hoping Arcadian Girl (SP) can bounce back from a disappointing fourth here last month, with the second that day Breviary (SP) another likely to contend.

Onto Belmont Park where they also hold nine contests between 18:00 and 22:23 and the Extra Place Race promotion is again in play with the both the opener and closer carrying the offer, as well as the races due off at 19:33, 20:37 and 21:49.

A quick look down the card shows a number of attractive horses but one to pay special attention to could be the impressive Witch Hunter (SP) in the 21:49.

Charlton Baker’s mare recorded wins at Aqueduct in both February and March and could well make it a hat-trick on her maiden Belmont outing.
